GUTIERREZ, Carlos. Writing the testimony. Anu. investig. [online]. 2013, vol.20, n.2, pp.287-290. ISSN 1851-1686.

During the ongoing legal proceedings for crimes of state terrorism is common to find in the witnesses, who were victims, the refusal to circulate their statement outside the trial. Which is the explanation of this limitation? If the testimony is already public, considering that it was done in the trial, the situation has a special relevance. The court claims from the witness a word in a documental sense, taking off its fictional nature. Due that, we can mention two different effects. From one side, it produces a word that is the repetition of the situation suffered in the past. From other side, it conduce the word to be a display of intimacy and not necessary a public word. What this article is trying to emphasize is that to speak in the public area needs a decision of the witness. As the notarial deed, to make a deed with the testimony equivalent to publish his word, which means, at the same time, to appropriate and to lose the testimony.
